    The definition of Soul music needs to be agreed. For me, Soul music is from the 60s & 70s. Motown, Stax, Chess and so on. What passes as R&B, World music & so on isn't Soul music.

    Think 60s & 70s Manchester music scene..

    There is modern soul. Michael Kiwanuka’s new album, for example. It is very good n’all!

    Motown is r&b and soul.

    R&B currently is a million miles away from Soul music. Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé and most of the stuff posted on this thread has got fuck all to do with classic Soul music.

    But...

    Motown, Detroit, motor city, was r&b and soul. With a little blues. And rock. So many influences.

    Today's r&b might have a different sound but it's still got the same influences.

    We’ll have to disagree on this, I reckon..

    No, I agree it's shite compared but it's still got soul...

    pretty sure this hasn't been posted in here as its not an original, but this 'remix' of haven't you heard by Patrice Rushen is brilliant. the video, a collection of soul train clips, goes so well with it. 7 minutes of bliss!
